Fifty-year-old Covent Garden-based insurance litigation practice Alistair Thomson & Partners is understood to be planning to dissolve in September with all five equity partners going their separate ways.
Michael Lent is believed to be going to Hammond Suddards, Martin Butterworth to Davies Arnold Cooper and practice development manager David Hartfield to be setting up on his own.
